WCPP manages risk to exposed asbestos

Following the discovery and subsequent repair of exposed asbestos caused by water damage in an unused office in the Legislature Building, an investigation was conducted to identify other potential risk areas.

The investigation, commissioned by the Department of Transport and Public Works (DTPW), has now been concluded. Additional potential risk areas have been identified and the WCPP is awaiting a final report and action plan from DTPW.
